4x4 Not engaging

I'm having the same issue with my 4x4 that some of you guys are having except my vacuum lines are either cracked or broken. Is there any other alternative than the ford vacuum lines, maybe something not so brittle?

Ford makes those vacuum lines out of kiln dried twigs and glass.

DieselSite has some braided steel replacements for those. I have a set I haven't put on yet. But they only replace the rubber portion that goes into the back of the hub...not all the plastic line behind. Not sure how often that breaks. From what I understand it is usually the rubber sections that go bad.

just discovered my 4x4 didn't engage..t ook 6hrs to dig it out and then I realized there are manual hub locks behind the wheel caps. doah!
applied vacuum to hubs and its not holding so I am lead to believe its the seal in the hub that has gone south. Anyone ever replace these?

I don't know what effects the plastic lines more for some than the others ?
I live in AZ I park outside and I still have OEM lines at 100k

my lines are fine but my actual hub isnt holding the vacuum. the its leaking out of the back side of it so in order to replace that seal you have to pull the whole hub apart and the axle out. it sucks. so i just use mine as manual hubs lol
